Item #: SCP-###

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-### is to be submerged in water within a container lined with lead and thick iron . This container is to remain anchored or attached to a stable surface, and under transport, to be attached to any surface heavy enough to keep the container in place.

In the event of SCP-### escaping its bearings or container, the room it is currently in is to be evacuated and any responding MTF units are to wear Foundation issued Radiation and Impact protection. Any personnel that are exposed to the radiation emitted by SCP-### are to seek either medical assistance or the nearest medical cabinet for Potassium Iodide tablets.1

In the case of SCP-### being stolen, any units assigned to retrieve SCP-### are to wait for a time between 1 and 5 hours before moving in to secure the object. If all hostiles have not perished either by impact or radiation exposure, MTF units are clear to dispatch all survivors from a distance before moving in to retrieve SCP-###.

Description: SCP-### appears to be a standard model spinthariscope, colored white with a black eye piece along with a constant blue glow. SCP-### displays no apparent damage or wear and has resisted all attempts at doing so, reverting to its previous condition almost immediately.

SCP-###, instead of using Thorium ore, uses what is currently believed to be Polonium-210. The metal used in place for Thorium ore is very similar to Polonium-210 with some exceptions;

  • Displays no signs of decay
  • Penetrates most materials without failure
  • Radioactive particles from the metal will not lose any energy while moving through the air or other materials except lead and iron, losing energy instantaneously within these materials.
  • The intensity will increase with the amount of time progressed.

The properties listed above are fairly minor compared to SCP-###'s main anomalous properties. Despite the small scale of SCP-###, it has been recorded to be going at speeds of 196 meters a second. The resulting impact does not destroy SCP-### but instead, destroys any objects that happen to be in its path. If the object in question is strong enough to withstand the impact, SCP-### will bounce off of it and continue on a different course.

The cause of SCP-###'s speed and radiation are a result of the metal within SCP-### emitting alpha particles that strike the Zinc Sulfide screen present in most Spinthariscopes to produce their non-anomalous effect. SCP-### reacts to the flashes of light made by the alpha particles as if it was just hit by the shockwave of a nuclear explosion, resulting in speeds as stated above.

Addendum: SCP-### was found in █████████, Australia after it had launched itself from the north side of Mount C████ from a recently inhabited home on the mountain side. SCP-### had destroyed several roads, houses, a gas station, and multiple vehicles before landing within the river that was in the area. 47 civilian injuries and 42 afflicted with radiation poisoning. The home was investigated and it was discovered that 3 people had been living there for 2 weeks or more. Further investigations into the whereabouts of these persons of interest are currently underway.
